Please accept my apologies . . .

November 30, 2007

Asalaam ‘Alaikum Everyone:

No – we’re not actually closed (wipe the sweat from your forehead!) – actually only the SORRY part applies!

I know that I promised that I would upload the latest Arabic Learning Materials a week or so after Eid. I also know that many of you have been checking and waiting to see when that would ever happen. Have you lost confidence in me? I hope not!

I know that I am way behind – and I don’t take making promises lightly. From the depths of my heart – I ask you to forgive me for not doing it yet. The week I was intending to upload them, the girls and I had a severe stomach virus. The baby didn’t recover until last weekend – she didn’t eat for seven days without being sick. For those of you who have children – I am sure you know what that is like, masha’Allah.

Because we were sick – we also have gotten a week behind in school (that’s approximately 4 or 5 hours of work each day). So, we have been struggling to get caught up all the while preparing for a trip overseas. We not only have doctor’s appointments and immunizations – buying gifts for family – buying clothes and things we need – we also have to plan what we will bring for daily use – and what we will bring for school. Since we are behind, we will have to do some schoolwork while we are there (yuck).

Also – I actually don’t know the password to our account to update the files. When I don’t upload often – I tend to forget when there are so many other things happening around me! My husband is preparing for his finals so I haven’t wanted to burden him with finding it for me (he also doesn’t remember – lol!) Yes, we are a mess!

Anyway – I have the best of intentions and do not promise anything without actually wanting to have it done. It bothers me when I make a promise and then can’t get it done. So, insha’Allah – I will try my best to get it done before our trip.

Please forgive me if I cannot do it – but I will do my best, insha’Allah.

Also, please make dua for me – I have been going through some difficult times lately – health wise and in general. Your duas are greatly appreciated – Jazak Allah Khair.

I love you all for the sake of Allah – may He reunite us all in Jannah, insha’Allah.

Asalaam ‘Alaikum,

Sumayyah Umm SAA

    Asalaam ‘Alaikum Dear Sisters:

    How I’ve missed you both, masha’Allah! Insha’Allah all is going well with you – you and your families are in the best of health and iman, insha’Allah.

    Jazak Allah Khair for the understanding. I’ve had Carpal Tunnel (pretty bad) in both hands since dd#2 was born four years ago. Now, I have been told by three separate doctors that they suspect that I have fibromyalgia. I’m still learning about it – but it sounds right from what I have been going through lately. One bad thing for fibromyalgia is stress – which I have had a lot of lately from many different people pulling me into many different directions – more and more responsibilities . . . etc. So, it causes me more pain – makes my insomnia worse and makes me anxious.

    I’m intending to read more about it when I return from my trip – hoping to start a new diet (that is supposed to help) – exercise more regularly – and to especially start to find ways to de-stress my life and ensure that I also take care of me as well as everyone else, insha’Allah.

    Jazak Allah Khair for the duas and hugs. I’ve really needed them. Insha’Allah this trip overseas will be a real vacation this time – last time didn’t go as well as planned.

    Asalaam ‘Alaikum,
    Sumayyah
